A Trip To Joann’s

Yesterday I went to Joann’s.  For those of you who don’t know, this is a fabric/craft store.  It is pretty much amazing, and my dad (on the advice of my sister) gave me a gift card for Christmas.  I don’t go out much without Michael and so yesterday was the first time I was able to go since I got it.

I, of course, used a 50% off one regular priced item coupon, and (thank you Android phone) had a 20% off total purchase coupon.  Plus Joann’s has the best sales, which is why I prefer shopping there to shopping at other fabric stores.  So for less than $15 I got enough fabric to make two more skirts, a Pound of Love that I am going to use to make a baby blanket and an embroidery hoop so I can finally work on my dad’s Christmas present.  Yeah its a little late but he know I love him. 

Normally this would have cost around $30, so I did good! 

I think I will be able to make both skirts today, which is both disappointing and exciting.  I am REALLY bad at sewing, so I just make VERY basic elastic waist skirts, because I don’t know how to do zippers or button-holes, but it makes my skirts really, really cheap.

I also went to Old Navy (another gift card) and got a sweater for $1.24. 

I wish I could get such good deals on groceries…

  1. We should shop together! You get good deals on this stuff and I get good deals on groceries!We're going to Korea at the end of this week to visit family, but maybe after we get back you and I can get together!

  2. I love Joann's so much! I went there this last weekend for their huge winter sale and almost everything was 40% off. A much better place than either Michaels or Craft Warehouse. Better prices and nicer clerks.
